The MMA Analysis is back to kickoff 2016 by reviewing UFC 195 and Robbie Lawler’s controversial win to retain the Welterweight Title. The guys also discuss Conor McGregor’s dual Title possibilities and a bunch of other random questions sent in by Twitter. Listen here: Consensus Bet Record (2016): 1-1 Consensus Bet Record (Overall): 23-22-1 Tracked…

The final MMA Analysis of 2015 is here, as Jay, Brad, Shaun, and former co-host Andrew Nixon look at UFC 195, headlined by a phenomenal Welterweight Title bout between Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit. The crew also has a pair of consensus bets to ring in the new year with. Listen here: Consensus Bets: Diego…

All of the MMA action from 2015 is now in the books, so it’s time for The MMA Analysis to take a look back upon the year that was. While Jay wanted to give every award to a guy who didn’t even fight in 2015, and Lance only wanted to talk about hawgs and feet,…

Following the biggest weekend in UFC history, only one event remains on the calendar for the top MMA promotion in 2015. The MMA Analysis takes a look at UFC on Fox 17 in an attempt to end the year on a winning note. The show may have also collectively decided to hand out the first…

This weekend’s MMA Analysis spans 32 fights, as Lance, Jay, Brad, and (new) Shaun break down UFC Fight Night 80, the TUF 22 Finale, and UFC 194 all in one shot. With so many fights there is an alarming amount of rational breakdown, and disturbing lack of comedy as your co-hosts stay moderately focused across…

The MMA Analysis had its regular host back this week as Lance just could not miss breaking down the epic UFC card this weekend in South Korea. In true union fashion however, one of the co-hosts had to take the night off, and this week the roulette wheel landed on Jay, while Sean remains missing…

Holly Holm pulled off one of the biggest upsets in MMA history on Saturday night, and the MMA Analysis spends almost as much time discussing that single result as breaking down the upcoming UFC Fight Night 78 card. Jay, Brad, and Shaun still manage to find some time to sneak in a consensus bet for…

The MMA Analysis is back to recap Bellator 145 and UFC Fight Night 77. The guys discussed the hardest hitters in each division and then depressingly broke down UFC 193 with the lone bright spot being the American hero Jared Rosholt. Listen here: Consensus Bets: Jared Rosholt (+100) Jared Rosholt ITD (+416) – Half Consensus…

After a week off, the MMA Analysis is back to break down UFC Fight Night 77. However, more importantly, Lance and Brad had a golden opportunity to make fun of Jay’s boyfriend Khabib, and do so at length. Unfortunately, Sean was not around to talk about his boyfriend Magnymedov, but you can’t always get what…

After a week off to refresh your co-hosts are back to talk about hard hitting issues like Canadian and American politics, trips to Peru, and golf… oh ya and breakdown UFC Fight Night 76 too.

UFC 192 leads into a bit of a lull period for the UFC, but there are no off weeks for The MMA Analysis… except maybe next week, which we will likely take off because there will not be much to talk about. There was plenty to discuss from this past weekend however, as UFC 192…

Sometimes, the MMA world will tell you that Uriah Hall will lose. Don’t listen to them. Instead, listen to The MMA Analysis, the only podcast where the possibility of a Uriah Hall spin kick finish was discussed at length. This week, after going 2-0 on consensus bets, and setting a lofty standard of entertainment, the…

For everything Bellator Not-So-Dynamite lacked in entertainment, last week’s MMA Analysis made up for it. This week, your co-hosts were still hungover from the excellent show put on last week, and they only had UFC Fight Night 75 to talk about. The show — which does feature friend of the podcast Kyoji Gucci Mane Horiguchi…

After a week off, the whole MMA Analysis crew is back and rejuvenated to talk about… Bellator? Well, at least there are some fights to talk about. Surely there will be no meandering into the racier side of the MMA world or anything like that. Nope, just straightforward breakdowns of a Bellator card with a…

With the choppy UFC schedule of late, the MMA Analysis has been forced to put out some episodes with more filler than normal. However, this week your hosts are back back at what they do best, breaking down fights and making bad jokes. The targets are a plenty too, from the ever-present needling of some…

We could lie and tell you this episode of the MMA Analysis previewed Bellator 141 in addition to recapping UFC Fight Night 74, but we just did not care enough about this Bellator card to break it down. We do however go through each fight from UFC Saskatoon, and get some insight from our very…

This week, it almost seems as if the UFC knew there would be an MMA Analysis podcast. While friend of the MMA Analysis Chris Que Ladies Kelades was already booked to fight in Saskatoon, Joe Silva went out of his way to make sure Neil Magny-Medov Magny also made it onto the show. Listen in…

After most of the podcast met up Nashville to take in UFC Fight Night 73 live, everyone but Lance reconvenes on this rare off-week for the UFC to compare notes between the show live and on TV.

The UFC event this week will be a big one for the MMA Analysis. Not necessarily because of the fights, but because 3/4s of the podcast will be in Nashville to catch the festivities live. If you end up in the area, stop by and say hi to Lance, Jay, and Brad. You can also…

Sometimes the universe sends you signals. For instance, UFC 190 this Saturday features both Magnymedov and the Headbussa himself, Clint Hester. Combined with the omnipresence of The King, this may make for the greatest podcast intro, and podcast, ever recorded. Or we just break down UFC 190 and give out some bets. Either way, you…

With a flawless victory in the books from The King at UFC Fight Night 71, The MMA Analysis crew is in high spirits to recap the remaining fights from last week and look ahead to the bantamweight title rematch between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao.

We are the MMA Analysis. We are a professional MMA podcast. And right now what we about to do is issue a warning to all other MMA podcasts. We here with the crew, so as you know we mean business. And what we here to let you know, is that when you click play on…

The busiest week of the year for the UFC results in a busy week for the MMA Analysis, but somehow your hosts manage to cram 20 fight breakdowns into just over an hour and a half. There was still plenty of time left over to talk about show favorites Neil Magny and Khabib Nurmagomedov too….

With no major MMA events this week, the MMA Analysis decided to bring one of the co-founders of podcast sponsor Dude Wipes on to the show. Ryan Meegan joins the crew this week to discuss Dude Wipes, their work in MMA, and some of the biggest news in the sport recently. Lance, Jay, Brad, and…

After a weekend of MMA featuring Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock, UFC Fight Night 70 and Bellator 139 are left with the unfortunate task of trying to measure up. The whole MMA Analysis crew is back together this week to attempt to inject some fun into a rather bleak set of fights, and with podcast…

Brad Taschuk

With a big weekend in MMA on the horizon, the MMA Analysis crew turns in one of their longest shows ever to break down the historic Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock bout. Apparently some Ultimate Fighting Champion organization is also putting on a card this weekend, and that gets discussed as well… but Kimbo vs….

With a full crew once again, this episode of The MMA Analysis tackles UFC 188, featuring a UFC heavyweight title headliner. Even with the sad news that the opening bout of the card, featuring a legendary web presence of the early 2000s has been cancelled, your four hosts give their unique brand of entertaining breakdowns…

Usual MMA Analysis host Lance was busy time travelling this week, but Jay, Brad, and Sean more than fill the void with their breakdowns of UFC Fight Night 68. Listen in for the best in serious (and not-so-serious) MMA analysis in the business, and of course the 5Dimes consensus bet of the week. Listen here:…

The MMA Analysis rejoices at the return of Carlos Condit, one of the most entertaining fighters in all of MMA. Lance, Brad, and Old Sean were up to their usual tricks, while backup executive producer New Shaun partially filled in for Jay Primetown. The important thing to remember is that both Condit and Do Bronx…

Perhaps the best MMA event of the year deserves the best MMA podcast around, so the MMA Analysis breaks down UFC 187 on this show. The rare UFC card which is stacked from top to bottom brings a surprising amount of serious fight discussion from your co-hosts, but they still find time to debate the…

Be sure to listen in to this episode of The MMA Analysis early, since UFC Fight Night 66 takes place on Saturday morning from the Philippines. Even without Jay for a portion of the podcast, Lance, Brad, and Sean managed to take way too long breaking down a card that has not seemed to garner…

Finally, the MMA Analysis is back in your lives! Lance, Jay, Brad, and Sean overcome the ghosts of podcasts lost to preview UFC Fight Night 65.

The MMA Analysis makes its triumphant return this week to break down the hotly anticipated UFC 186. Well, maybe the card is not that exciting, but after a week with no show there are people dancing in the streets for the podcast to be back.

With Jay Primetown out a his prom committee meeting, Lance, Brad, and Sean were left to fend for themselves this week on The MMA Analysis. With the quality of the UFC Fight Night 64 card, that resulted in more hijinks than fight breakdowns, although your hosts did manage to sneak a few of their plays…

After another week with no UFC card, the MMA Analysis crew has a slate of fights to talk about on this episode of the podcast.

This week, The MMA Analysis was missing a co-host, but rather than make the usual jokes about his absence, we instead ask that you visit the page Sean Carey has set up to help cover medical expenses for a close friend who suffered a stroke last week. Iraq War veteran, husband, and father of two…

With no major fight card this week, The MMA Analysis decided to bring in some reinforcements in order to have the show run longer than the 15 minutes it would have gone otherwise.

Despite the tragic loss of Sean Carey to the three inches of snow received in North Carolina, The MMA Analysis must soldier on. With heavy hearts and terrible jokes, Lance, Jay, and Brad break down UFC 184, or as it came to be known on the show, UFC Fight Night 184. Following a very successful…

A much slower week in MMA allows your hosts to focus their attention solely on UFC Fight Night 61, which features a pair of intriguing bouts at the top of the card.

We lost a couple of minutes at the beginning of the MMA Analysis this week because of poor audio, but here are the cliff notes: -Conor McGregor is good. -Judges are bad. After that however, Lance, Jay, Brad, and Sean get into the real meat of this show, the UFC on Fox 14 breakdown. Your…

The UFC returns this weekend with a man they hope to make one of their biggest stars, Conor McGregor. He is fighting someone, but few care who (it is Dennis Siver, for the record). Jay, Brad, and Sean break down the entire UFC card, as well as bits of both Bellator 132 and WSOF 17,…

On Saturday, January 3rd, the UFC could very likely be putting on its best fight for all of 2015. The MMA Analysis crew does not take a happening like this lightly.

MMA took a bit of a hiatus last week, and so did the MMA Analysis, but the whole crew is back this week (and a day earlier than normal) to break down all the fights from UFC 181. In light of all the talk in MMA about sponsorships, the podcast unveils their new sponsor, and…

This week, Jay and Brad are left to their own devices to recap the MMA tripleheader from last weekend, as well as preview UFC Fight Night 57. They were joined for the recap portion by fellow MMAOddsBreaker.com contributor and co-host of the Parting Shot Podcast, Adam Martin. After all the talk surrounding UFC, Bellator, and…

Forget about the triple dose of MMA this Saturday night, the biggest issue in the MMA world is: what happened to Lance Fischel halfway through the podcast? If anyone has seen him, please return him to the MMA Analysis headquarters. Despite losing their host mid-show, Jay, Brad, and Sean keep rolling right through UFC, Bellator,…
